The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, its heritage shows a recurring theme of going its own way, doing things differently – and achieving notable results.  The University of Surrey has risen in all major league tables for UK universities in the past year.  We’re incredibly proud to have been named University of the Year by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016. We’ve climbed from sixth to fourth place in the Guardian University Guide for 2016, moved up to eighth place in the Complete University Guide 2016.  Additionally, we have been ranked as 5thin the National Student Survey which showed student satisfaction at 92%.

The School of Economics at Surrey ( has a reputation for Research and Teaching in Economics, built upon a commitment to high quality, rigorously founded applied and theoretical work, often of direct policy significance. The School enjoys a strong profile in research and teaching, exemplified by a successful 2014 REF and recent NSS scores. We have recently invested heavily to recruit staff whose innovative work is having a large impact on international research agendas.

As part of an exciting strategic initiative to consolidate the School’s position as a top Economics department in the UK, we are looking to make appointments at different levels. Candidates should hold a relevant PhD and should have already established a track record of publishing in top international journals. Candidates with successful bidding for external funding are particularly welcome. We encourage applications from candidates with research/teaching interests in all areas of Economics and Econometrics.

In return we can offer a competitive remuneration package, which includes relocation assistance where appropriate, the latest teaching facilities, and access to a variety of staff development opportunities.

Informal enquires should be directed in the first instance to Professor Joao Santos Silva, Head of School via email at containing "Surrey appointments 2016” in the subject line.

Interviews will be held throughout November/December 2016.
